I was super excited when I saw the Influenster Mary Kay Glam VoxBox in my mail. I am not the biggest make-up person, but I'm always looking to learn a bit more about it, and I love trying different products to see what works best with my skin tone.
Though I have heard of Mary Kay before, I have never tried any of their products. Here's all the sweet stuff I received in my box:
1-2. Mary Kay Translucent Loose Powder
I loved this powder! It goes on clear, and it's really light compared to the powder that I usually use. I also have oily skin in my T-zone area, and this product helped simmer that down and not make my face so shiny, which I loved. Also, the powder brush they provided for application of the powder was amazing! I'll definitely be using this product again and again.
3. Mary Kay Mineral Cheek Color, Shy Blush
This color was perfect for my skin tone, and I think it would look amazing for people with skin lighter than mine as well. I like my blush to be subtle, and this blush went on easily without the application of many layers.
4-5. Mary Kay Cream Eye Color, Apricot Twist
The color wasn't dramatic on my eyelids, which I enjoyed, but I needed to apply several layers in order for it to be noticeable on my skin. Even in the picture below, it's hard to tell that I have any on. It suggested using either the provided brush or your finger to apply the eye color, but when I used the brush, it started clumping and the brush hardened. When I started to use my finger to apply more color, it wiped some of the eye color off. Next time, I will stick to just using my finger.
6-7. Mary Kay Gel Eyeliner with Expandable Brush Applicator, Jet Black
I am in love with this eye liner! It stayed on my eyes forever. The application with the applicator was super easy and looked amazing. I plan on using this eyeliner every day. It's amazing.
8. Mary Kay Lash Love Mascara, I Heart Black
I am not a big mascara user because I don't have the patience to spend a lot of time curling my eyelashes, but I was still excited to test this product. When I put it on my eyelashes, they looked much longer and fuller and didn't clump my eyelashes together like other mascaras tend to do.
9. Mary Kay NouriShine Plus Lip Gloss, Mango Tango
I adore this lip gloss. The texture is a little sticky, but not enough to notice after awhile. The color is bright, but not in a dramatic way. I will definitely be using this lip gloss often!
10. Mary Kay Bronzing Powder, Light to Medium
I didn't use the bronzing powder because the color they provided me was too light for me.
I love how everything looks together, and I'm excited about having the products in my growing make-up collection!
